The look twisty because of the Short rows, but they fit well enough

Knitting Stories by Sylvia Olsen
Cascade 220 Lilac and Galaxy
Been on the needles for almost a year, had to frog most of the color work but now looks way better

~Coquelicot, by Hel et Zel (means “poppy”)
For my friend’s daughter; making a size 8
RYC Cashsoft DK (long since discontinued); Last time I used it, it stretched badly, so I’m knitting it on a 3.5mm to make a tighter fabric (and get gauge)
Could have been done, but I was chatting with Marsha too much yesterday! ;)
~In Stillness by Alicia Plummer
This is for our top-down pullover class. It’s a sweater moustache right now…
Knoll Coast, Lambswool & Cotton, colour Nimbus, 4mm needles
The class runs every other week, so I haven’t knit much on it - I don’t need to finish the yoke until next Thursday
~Sunny side up! by Isabell Kraemer
Left out the lace pattern, making stripes instead.
Knit One, Crochet Too Cozette (62% Silk, 30% Cotton, 8% Nylon) in Medium Blue and Seaglass. Its about 3 skeins… I think one was overweight, therefore the count is off. Computer says I only had 2 blue skeins, not 3.
Started this in June 2014 (?!?)
